Knauss K-12 Music Curriculum

What Would You Say ...

... if you were offered 1,035 pages of a research-based, field-tested, master-teacher K-12 general music curriculum, proven to produce superior musically skilled students?

Would you like to stop wandering about in music teacher unknowns? Many beginning and experienced music teachers wonder what to teach each grade level, how to sequence one grade into the next, and how to teach music effectively to the different age groups. Many spend their first 5-10 years of teaching stumbling around in these unknowns, and then settle in to whatever seems comfortable to them. Many think that teaching music education is simply providing the students with an exposure to songs and music activities, and then over time the students might gain music skills and artistry by automatic absorption. Instead of years of guesswork, how would you like these unknowns resolved for you with master teacher "How-To's" built right into a sequenced K-12 music curriculum?

Would you like to be certain that you are teaching music skills successfully? With 3 music education degrees, Orff-Schulwerk Level III Certification and master classes beyond, NAfME (formerly MENC) Nationally Certified Master Music Educator, and four decades of experience teaching preschool through university graduate level, I can provide master art-of-teaching techniques completely free of new teacher trial-and-error. Easy-to-use teacher instructions with built-in quality assessments all command amazing results, just by following the simple curriculum instructions.
